Jonathan Majors’ career slate has been astonishing from starring in different critical acclaim projects and even earning an Emmy nomination. The actor is now set to enter the next chapter of his career, as he will be playing the next big threat for the Avengers in the MCU.

Even though the actor considered himself quite lucky for playing such a big character in the multibillion-dollar franchise, Majors has also been pretty adamant about not wanting this MCU role to define his career’s legacy.

Jonathan Majors doesn’t consider the role of Kang his highest point

It’s quite common among top-tier actors, who don’t want to stick around one role for their entire career, with one example being Daniel Craig, who will not return to portray James Bond even after making a significant mark in the 6-decade-old character’s legacy and the same goes with Jonathan Majors.

Even though the actor has expressed his happiness for being able to play a supervillain on numerous occasions for the next MCU phase, the actor has also been pretty vocal about not wanting the character of Kang to define his legacy as an actor, while emphasizing his other upcoming projects apart from the MCU. In an interview with Nerdbunker, he stated,

“From an acting standpoint, it’s a lot of fun because— I don’t just play Kang in the world, you know. I have other projects, and other movies going on, which is cool because I have an opportunity to do the work, you know, in multiple different worlds.”

It’s reasonable why the actor doesn’t consider Kang as his highest point and wants to keep moving forward while not sticking to one role for the rest of his career.

Jonathan Majors’ portrayal of Damian Anderson in Creed 3 might overshadow his MCU counterpart

Although every spotlight is shining on Jonathan Majors’ entry into the MCU, this isn’t the only antagonistic role he has on his plate in 2023. His villainous role in the directorial debut of Michael B Jordan’s Creed 3 can be more memorable than his portrayal of Kang in MCU.

The Rocky and creed franchise has been great at producing villains filled with pride and rage but Jonathan Majors’ portrayal of the friend turned rival seems to be one of the most sympathetic antagonists in the franchise. The actor has previously garnered critical acclaim for his performance in Lovecraft country, while also earning an Emmy nomination under his belt, and his strength as a character actor brings the resentment towards Michael B Jordan’s Adonis Creed to life.

Even though the anticipation for Kang in MCU is at an all-time high and fans are confident about Majors pulling a fantastic job in the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and the rest of the projects he has been associated with, it’s not hard to see why the actor with such a caliber doesn’t want his career to be defined by a single MCU role.
